Beverly Hills 90210, Season 02
Review by Lando da Pimp
The most famous zip code 90210 isn't really the Beverly Hills code but it is the infamous teen drama from the 90's. The second season amped up the storylines with Scott shoots himself, pregnancy scare, and the appearance of Color Me Badd!

Three featuretts are included. The first is Meet the Walshes. Carol Potter (Cindy Walsh) and James Eckhouse (Jim Walsh)look back on their days on the Beverly Hills 90210 set. The second is Our Favorite Valentine - Christine Elise discusses her role as the edgy and misunderstood Emily Valentine. The last feature recaps Everything You Need To Know About Beverly Hills 90210 Season 2.
I loved the storylines for this season it was a great improvement over the first season. They did attempt to include every type of "teen issue" into the show. Suicide, pregnancy, drug use, steroids, racism, and of course the worst issue, the horrible music of Color Me Badd.
